Disciplining children a controversial topic for sure. Everyone has their own beliefs when it comes to parenting and disciplining their child.While some believe that spanking your own child is OK, others feel it’s not OK for anyone to ever spank a child.

This show brings up the topic of disciplining a child that is not your own. Some feel even verbal discipline is off-limits for anyone except the parents. What do YOU think?

This eight-episode drama was inspired by the novel by Christos Tsiolkas, which was also turned into a miniseries in Australia.  The clip starts out showing a seemingly normal family gathered together for Hector’s 40th birthday celebration. Hector’s cousin Harry, portrayed by Zachary Quinto, makes a toast. He says, “To my cousin, the last good man in America.”  Simultaneously, scenes flash by of Hector carrying on an affair with his wife’s teenage receptionist. The clip ends with Harry furiously yanking a baseball bat from a small boy at the party and slapping him.
